Joan vs. Don: Female Leadership in Digital Agencies

#sxsw #digichicks


Women in Digital: succeeding as a woman in digital agencies or in digital arms of agencies.

Our Core Conversation will be a exploration of gender roles in digital agency leadership. We want to discuss if digital agencies offer women more opportunity that traditional creative shops, where digichicks are making the biggest impact, the perception that women aren't as technical and if the the collaborative nature of interactive makes it easier or harder for women.

Please join us for a passionate discussion.
